The motion ofa falling objects played a significant role in the history of science. A body falling freely under only thegravitational force (neglecting air resistance) will be examined and acceleration due to gravity(g)will bedetermined.THEORYA body that is falling freely is acted upon only by the gravitational force exerted by the earth, and this force isdirected towards the center of the earth. This gravitational force is constant and the acceleration due togravity(g)will be constant for a freely falling body (neglecting the air resistance).Acceleration is defined as rate of change of velocity with time. That is:𝑎 =𝑣−𝑣0𝑡or𝑣 = 𝑣0+ 𝑡(1)where𝑎=acceleration of the body,𝑣0=initial velocity,𝑣= final velocity,𝑡= time intervalFrom equation (1), a plot ofv vs. t
